Horse Shortage Due
if War Continues
If the European war makes much
demand on the horse supply in the
United States, a pronounced short
age will result, declares Dr. W. H.
Lytle, chief of the state department
of agriculture division of animal
France has contracted already to
purchase in this country 6000 horses
for war use, and if the war continues
more purchases are anticipated.
The U. S. horse population, al
ready low, decreased further in 1939
due to smaller colt crops, encephal
omyelitis and tractor competition.
Even if war demands do not de
velop materially, there should still
be an active demand for horses this
year because there is increasing
stress on horses for recreational use,
also replacement will be necessary
for a certain percentage of the ani
mals used in farm work.
The country had in the neighbor
hood of 10 million horses and four
million mules as the year opened.
The federal farm census of 1935
listed 171,071 horses and mules of
all ages in Oregon.
